ALC India's Work in providing consulting services for livelihoods

Feasibility studies

An enterprise or initiative that seeks to improve livelihoods must take into account several factors. Sometimes, organizations encounter key factors impacting feasibility, after the initiative has been launched.

A comprehensive feasibility study – covering market, technical, economic, financial, legal and operational aspects – can help organizations evaluate their proposals with rigour and objectivity. This can in turn yield several critical insights that will greatly improve business design. ALC India delivers comprehensive feasibility studies that address the perspectives of all stakeholders – from investors to promoters to the ultimate stakeholders who are the communities whose livelihoods will be impacted.



Viability studies

Will ideas to improve livelihoods ultimately make a difference? This is the question every livelihood initiative must face.

The answer lies in a viability study, which can indicate whether a project will be profitable or not. Importantly, such a study can identify critical links that affect viability in the plan and help focus on these links . With these insights, it becomes possible to look for options, solutions and mechanisms that transform the viability. With a viability study, it is also possible to broaden or limit the scope to redefine the viability of a project .


Business modelling

How does an organization create, deliver and capture value? In other words, how is a business modelled? Many livelihood enterprises get some elements of a business model right but fall short of creating a comprehensive model.

ALC India can work with organizations to define and articulate a business model that facilitates the kind of clarity, focus and action essential for delivering and capturing value.


Proposals and business plans

An area where many organizations need support is the preparation of a sound business plan. From our experience, we find that many organizations create inadequate activity plans.

ALC India can develop comprehensive business plans covering the market, the organization, management, strategies, service and product mix, investment requirements and the all-important spreadsheet with financials.


Enterprise strategy

While it is important to dwell on the details, a business must not forget to ask big questions, explore possible answers (because no one answer is right) and follow the most suitable option and action plan. 

ALC India utilizes its well-honed understanding of the big picture and an eclectic mix of strategy tools to help organizations formulate sound strategies, implement them effectively and also evaluate them for actionable insights.


Value chain analysis

The biggest problem marginalized producers face is the disproportionate share of value received to value actually created. This is where the value chain presents itself as an important framework for enterprises of the marginalized. A value chain study can identify where significant value is realized and throw open possibilities for tapping into that value to realize a better share for the end producer.

ALC India has worked extensively on value chains across commodities and sectors and can generate insights that give interventions a better chance of transforming livelihoods.
